    Hendrix pairs a rigorous academic experience with a tight knit community that made me feel right at home. The school places a premium on critical thinking, writing ability, and multidisciplinary, liberal arts education. Its Odyssey Program provided me with the tools and opportunities I needed pursue novel academic and professional development. The school did a terrific job of encouraging growth and nurturing my progress along the way. Hendrix’s faculty and staff are top tier professionals, but they are also deeply engaged in student interests and wellbeing. I had a terrific experience!

    I love Hendrix! The campus culture is great, and there are tons of things to get involved with. The administration and teachers are amazing as well. While the traditional dorms are old and a bit run down, they are still vital to campus. Your freshman dorm becomes part of your school pride. The events on campus are fun and inclusive. School-sponsored parties are held at least once a month, and if those aren’t your thing there often alternative events going on. The campus is gorgeous, especially in fall and spring. Everyone is there to learn, but the environment feels more encouraging than competitive. Students push one another to be better. The school puts a focus on mental health as well, encouraging students to take care of themselves physically, mentally, and emotionally. Orientation week is one of the most fun weeks of the year, and the student leaders are awesome.
    Hendrix is such a welcoming community full of extremely driven students! The faculty is especially wonderful, and they will do everything they can to help each student succeed! They genuinely care about their students, and it is refreshing how much they do! The student culture is amazing and fun while still being safe! The school is pretty small, and they do not have a lot of money to work with. Despite this, it is a great experience, especially for those in need of a lot of financial aid going into college!
